Davao has been a home to me for 27 years but it wasn't surprising to know that there are still new places to discover and new things to try in my hometown. With the Kadayawan Festival fast approaching this coming August, I am pretty sure that tourists will surely flock again to Davao City for the celebration, so if you're going to be one of them, this post might be helpful.
As mentioned in my previous blog entry, I took some time off from my blog and wandered around Davao for 10 days to discover new places and experience both new and old ideas of what not to miss when you're in Davao. So here's my list of happy 10 which truly makes Davao City deserving of being in #WonderfulMindaNOW.
